Therapeutic Approach

My Approach

I am an active therapist and I engage in the journey.

I work with clients who are experiencing

  • Heightened anxiety
  • Low mood / depression
  • Early parenting issues
  • Stress
  • Bereavement and loss

In addition I have a particular interest in supporting clients in strengthening their 

  • Self-esteem
  • Confidence
  • Relationships

I offer one-time consultations, short-term (6 weeks), and long-term therapy. 

My work draws on a background of training and experience from Person- Centred, Solution Focused (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Gestalt therapies.

Ethos of therapies offered:

  • SFBT explained by Steve de Shaz

“Where you stand determines what you see and what you do not see.
It determines also the angle you see it from.
A change in where you stand changes everything.”

  •  CBT explained by Aaron Beck

“…the cognitive approach helps individuals to come to grips with the problems leading to emotional distress and to gain a broader perspective…”

  • Person-Centred is Humanistic and explained by Carl Rogers

“When I look at the world I’m pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic. The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

  • Gestalt explained by E. Hubbard & F. Perls

“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”
“Learning is the discovery that something is possible”
